Even if you stumble upon a dud (looking back last week at Transmitter Park’s awful French film, complete with 10-minute long pauses between an on-screen couple filled with existential grip) you’ll still get the comradery of your neighbors, (who’ll likely be passing around drinks sneakily). Plus bringing dinner with a loved one or a group of friends is a great way to break up the monotony. Here’s the entire list compiled from every listing made public. Enjoy the dull things we call stars, cheers New York.
